The Pittsburgh Pirates recently contracted with Real Media to create several elements for their 2008 season. These elements included starting lineups, logos and a rain delay animation. These elements were created for both the main video board and and the ribbon boards in PNC Park.
A 3D Pirate ship was created for use as a background for highlighting the players. The 3D model was created with Pittsburgh Pirates logos and branding on sails and various parts of the ship. The players headshots are displayed on different parts of the ship. Ribbon board animations were built to coincide with the starting lineup animations.
